It’s time for another Fabric Friday! I can’t believe it’s Friday already. But, believe me, I’m happy about that. Lots to get done this weekend, starting with taking down the Christmas decorations. I know, I know…I should at least wait until after the ball drops. But, it takes so long to put things back that I wanted to get a head start. Last night, I took down all of the decorations on our main tree, as well as stowing away our Christmas figurines from the living room. Instantly, I feel more relaxed knowing the extra clutter is coming to an end.
Anyway, time to get back on point. I think we can all agree that sometimes pink can look…well, too pink. Done tastefully, it can add a major “wow!” to any room. 2 summers ago, I had the idea of painting our dining room in a color named “Very Berry”. They weren’t lying! Even though it’s bold in color, the room is grounded with wood floors and furniture, white trim, and a white washed wood planked ceiling. Despite the unconventional choice in paint, the room looks smashing and has a whole lot of wow factor.
Fabric that is primarily pink in color is not something to wary of, as long as it’s grounded with a neutral. With fabric swatches #1, #2, #3, and #5 – they all have a common theme, and that is the light background color. That light background softens the brightness of the pink, and gives it elegance. On the flip side, swatch #4 is nothing but bright and bold – but can’t you just picture that fabric on an accent chair in a predominantly white room? That would be stunning! Swatch #3 would be a really great jumping off point for a girl’s bedroom. It is fun and funky, but also a fabric that the girl can grow up with. Swatch #1 and #2 would be beautiful in either a bedroom or bathroom scheme and I would love swatch #5 as curtains.

On a side note: Remember how I said next year we were going to make a point of eating better? Well, Andrew definitely took to heart the term “next year” because he came home last night with a bag of McDonald’s for dinner. We’ll never learn.
